aaron-roward-beaned.JPGSan Francisco Giants center fielder Aaron Rowand suffered two fractures to his left cheekbone and a mild concussion after he was hit in the face with a pitch by Vicente Padilla in last night's 10-8 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Rowand was struck on the bill of the helmet and struggled for several minutes before leaving the game. A CT scan at a hospital revealed just how serious his injuries were.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy doubted that Padilla was throwing at Rowand in retaliation, since San Francisco starter Todd Wellemeyer had pitched high and tight to Matt Kemp three innings earlier.

"You're always going to wonder what the intent was," Bochy said. "In that situation, that's not a time when a pitcher is going to hit somebody."
Rowand has not yet been placed on the 15-day disabled list.
